“WOW! Great dining at a hotel restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Ate here in 2012 and was unimpressed, typical hotel cafe that had a limited menu that was okay at best. We prefer to eat at local restaurants that are not chains because we love variety.
Hotel restaurants are not where we go for a quality meal. Management responded to my tripadvisor review from last year promising changes. WOW! Changes for the better. The Tremont Cafe has figured out how to provide excellent food at a reasonable price. Best pizza I have ever eaten, their flatbread pizza with truffle oil is to die for. We almost never eat twice at the same place but we kept coming back and ended up eating four meals there. Will eat there again.

“BEST KEPT SECRET IN TOWN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

If you didn't know better you'd blink and miss this opportunity located in the Tremont Hotel. The food at this establishment is absolutely outstanding! If you're looking for a nice place to go that's generally not crowded dine here.. Because it's located in this well appointed hotel you can dress up or feel just as comfortalbe a little more casual. You walk in and order your food. However, they do bring it to you and get you anything else you might need once your seated. Additionally,they have T.V.'s at the table for extra enjoyment. All of the food selections are wonderful ranging from lasagna, to Salmon, to a chicken barbecue brick oven pizza. The prices won't break the bank either, and were very reasonalbe for the type and quality of food.The cafe is located just adjacent to the hotel lobby so quite often they have somebody playing the piano..That makes it rather nice around the holidays. The Tremont Cafe is now one of my favorite places to go on the island, and for sure one of the best kept secrets in town!
